1990 - A year synonymous with the most successful period in the Lismore GAA history - U14 Team
This week we look at the success of the U14 team of 1990. Captained by Ballysaggart native Seamus Clancy, the club won the Western title for the seventh successive season when they defeated Abbeyside by 4-06 to 2-04. They then beat St. Saviours in the county final by 3-06 to 1-01. The U14 grade was nearly owned by Lismore all those years ago and was a reflection of the nursery that was The Christian Brothers School under the stewardship of Br. J.L. Dormer. It was self-evident that the revival of underage hurling in the area coincided with the arrival of Br. Dormer to Lismore in 1980. Success was to continue as Lismore also won the Féile na nGael competition comprehensively beating St. Saviours a second time by 6-03 to 1-01. Next week we look at the U16 team of 1990.
The U14 panel of 1990 was: Brendan Landers, Billy Buckley, Maurice O' Connor, Anthony Whelan, John Landers, Shane Fennessy, Dan Shanahan, Seamus Clancy (Capt), Tomas Landers, Michael Shanahan, Eugene O' Brien, David Bennett, Eoin Bennett, Bobby Nugent, William Cunningham, Brian O Farrell, Thomas Veale, Sean Veale, John O' Gorman, John Begley, Stephen Quinn, Gerald O' Gorman.
